The Isley Brothers Go For Your GunsThe Isley Brothers Go For Your Guns

Go For Your Guns was the fifth album by the 3+3 line-up of the Isley Brothers and was a landmark album for the group on many levels. A mixture of molten funk tunes and beautiful ballads weaving in and out of each other led to massive sales and huge chart success.

The album featured smash R&B and pop hits that continued the rise of the Isley’s popularity in the mid-seventies. The Pride hit the #1 spot on the R&B charts and was followed by Livin’ in the Life, which went all the way to #4 on the same chart. In addition both singles did very respectably on the pop charts. Voyage to Atlantis also charted R&B and Footsteps in the Dark became one of the most sampled tracks of the rap era. All leading to an album that climbed to the top of the R&B charts and crossed over to #6 on the pop chart.

In-depth liner notes that include new reflections with band members Ernie Isley and Chris Jasper. Brilliantly remastered by Mark Wilder at Battery Studios in New York City.
